Zero Glare 12" Bench Rule

On the metric portion of the rule, anyone care to inform me of what some of the graduations are specifically where each arrow is and why some are linked together (the ones that have a arc on the top).

Hi,

The arrows are located at 32mm intervals to aid those doing "European" style cabinetry. I beleive the arcs are just a design element!

Ruta,

Thanks for the answers. I should have known better. I work for a company that builds Euro Style cabinets. The little things that make you feel like an idiot!

Knowing BCTW, the arcs must be something other than just a design element =).

Forum MFG,

When I saw your question I tried to find a catalog where the "BR" rules where introduced, but couldn't. So the next best thing was the catalog entry for the RS-18 ruler, which has the same markings on the metric scale. Here's the wording in the catalog: "The millimeter rule is a unique rule with extraordinary artwork with 32mm splits indicated." So my guess is that the arcs are the extraordinary artwork! Which also might serve the purpose of making the mm scale stand out from the inch scales since it is out numbered!
